Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the skin to help keep it plump. However, like collagen, as we age the production of hyaluronic acid decreases. Restylane is a synthetic version of this same substance, and when injected into wrinkles, folds and lines it restores plumpness and volume. Results are so transformative that this procedure is sometimes referred to as “a liquid facelift.”
Restylane is an excellent solution for:
This simple office procedure usually takes no longer than 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated. Most patients opt for a topical anesthetic applied ahead of time for optimum comfort. Some patients describe the sensation as mildly uncomfortable, while the majority say they feel no pain at all. Some people may experience swelling or tenderness at the injection site(s), but this is typically brief and resolved by applying ice. Patients generally resume their regular daily activities immediately following the procedure, but should avoid excessive heat and sunlight.
Changes are immediately noticeable, with full results apparent in about a week following treatment. They’re dramatic too; Restylane reduces lines and wrinkles by as much as 80%. Best of all, your transformation can last up to one year, at which point most individuals return for a refresher treatment.
